    • Two-headed tortoise celebrates 20th birthday

      A two headed tortoise adopted by the Geneva Natural History Museum is celebrating his 20th birthday.

      In the wild it’s unlikely the animal would have survived for long.

      But with care, Janus is living a carefree life.

      While tortoises can live for 80 years – Janus’s keepers don’t believe he’ll live for that long – but they’re doing their best to keep him going.

      He gets regular food, making sure both heads get an opportunity to eat and occasional extra vitamins.

      A woman brought an unhatched Janus to the museum in 1997 – wanting them to put the egg in an incubator. When Janus appeared, the museum kept him – making him the institution’s mascot.
